Client and employee health and safety is of the utmost importance to the staff at Ryan Reporting. As the situation surrounding the coronavirus, or COVID-19, rapidly changes, the staff at Ryan Reporting closely follows the updates provided by the professionals at the World Health Organization (WHO) and Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and actively employs their advice. Ryan Reporting’s offices have been, and always will be pristine, but the firm now takes further measure to ensure proper sanitation and disinfection.
Businesses across Florida have been shutting down and instructing employees to work from home in hopes of curbing the spread of the virus. The staff at Ryan Reporting understands that many attorneys may not want to leave home to keep themselves, and their families, safe, but they still want to proceed with their cases. The discourse of law coming to a standstill is difficult for attorneys and their clients alike.
Ryan Reporting offers the latest and greatest technology that the world of law has to offer. With their quality audio and visual equipment, clients will see and hear everything said and done as though it was in person. When an attorney schedules a remote court reporter, they can expect the most accurate transcript possible.
In West Palm Beach, there is one attorney clients know to turn to for all their estate planning, guardianship, and elder care needs. For nearly 30 years, Mark Shalloway has been the face of elder law. His passion, respect, and dedication to his work sets him apart from peers. Where many attorneys simply look to numbers for a measure of success, Mark Shalloway and his staff at his firm, Shalloway & Shalloway, look to their clients’ results.
Shalloway and his staff have been referred to as “lifesavers” with the ability to turn a situation from “desperate to hopeful.” The patient staff will see through every single case, no matter how big or small, to the end. In the golden hour of one’s life, one should not have to worry if their retirement and family can be sustained. Shalloway’s elder law attorneys makes turns the worry from a burden into an easy to swallow pill.
It really makes a difference when clients can tell their attorney wants the best for them,” Brandon Bell, a legal consultant in Illinois, says. “In such a trying time in one’s life, it is crucial they feel supported. Mark Shalloway and his staff provide clients with that support they crave, as well as the results they need.”
But Mark Shalloway does more to help than providing legal solace—he goes out into the world to make a difference. Save serving as the President of the Academy of Florida Elder Law Attorneys, president of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys (NAELA), and other positions of leadership within the elder law community, Shalloway has made it his mission to educate others on his area of practice. He gives free, monthly seminars on estate planning. He works as an Adjunct Faculty member at Palm Beach Community College and a frequent lecturer at Stetson College of Law—namely on special needs trusts.
This past December, Mr. Shalloway did just that. On behalf of Stetson College, Shalloway traveled to Fort Stewart in Savannah, Georgia to deliver a talk on the wide array of information concerning elder law—from wills and trusts, to insurance, and everything in between. Alongside him was Professor Rebecca Morgan, a head professor at Stetson, and a number of elder law attorneys from across the nation.
These figureheads in elder law delivered a talk on elder and special needs law to the JAG corps stationed there. Along with the informative session on medicare and more, Shalloway and his cohorts presented a Certificate of Appreciation to John Webster—a staff judge advocate at the third infantry division and Fort Stewart.
A major part of my mission as an elder and special needs care attorney is educating the public on their options on everything from health insurance to tax liabilities,” Mark Shalloway says. “My firm is deeply committed to philanthropy within our community and to helping the families of military personnel plan for their lives once their careers reach a culmination.”
Mark Shalloway doesn’t have to continuously go the extra miles he travels to help others, but he does. It is an aspect of his work Shalloway has deemed important, because he cares about more than making a paycheck—he truly cares about the lives of others, clients or not. It is a formidable trait to carry, especially when it comes to elder law.

Technology has rapidly changed and transformed in massive ways over the past century. We went from horse-drawn transportation to cars being practically a necessity. We used to need an operator to connect our calls. Now, our telephones have gone from bulky and wall-mounted to pocket-sized with all the world’s knowledge at the touch of a button.
The businesses that reject change are the ones that fail. When searching for a variety of services, the first thing many of us do is go to Google. If a business decided to invest in a listing in Yellow Pages instead of a well-designed website, they will more likely than not lose an innumerable number of customers. For some, offering free WiFi isn’t something that was even on their register. It’s something customers immediately recognize, however, and it can even turn away business. These little nuances of the modern world cannot be neglected.
Court Reporting in the Modern Age
Unfortunately, too many court reporting firms fall into this bracket of business. They are comfortable with the equipment, resources, and website they have, and while comfort is a good thing, it can be bad for business. If a business doesn’t evolve with the ever-changing world, it gets left behind.
These changes don’t have to be scary, however. Take Orlando court reporters at Ryan Reporting, for instance. The court reporting firm took notice of the rapidly changing legal industry, assessed them, and incorporated them into their business. This is what has kept the firm’s doors open for over 40 years.
How Ryan Reporting Keeps Up
Ryan Reporting recognized that, these days, attorneys and paralegals don’t have the time to hop from firm to firm in search of each and every one of their litigation services. So, on top of offering quality, certified court reporters, Ryan Reporting also provides clients with videography services, deposition suites, case research, translators, word indexing, and more.
The firm also knows that to have an entirely successful case, attorneys need a litigation team that has full understanding of their area of practice. Experienced court reporters that are fluent in the terminology and nuances of the field can make a world of difference for the outcome of a case.
What is perhaps one of their most innovative services, however, is their online booking engine. Many court reporting firms still require attorneys to call in to request a service. Email is certainly easier for on the go professionals, but Ryan Reporting’s mobile-friendly booking engine really changes the game. Attorneys simply have to fill in information about their case and services needed, and like that, they can schedule a service anywhere, at any time of day—be it during their morning coffee run, or right before bed.
Legal analyst, Lucero Nunez, has nothing but good to say about the firm.
Ryan Reporting really is ahead of the court reporting industry. All of their changes have been made with their clients’ needs in mind, and as a result, they soar as leaders in the industry. Struggling firms should look to Ryan Reporting inspiration.”

When one thinks of large cultural-hub cities, what immediately comes to mind is New York or Los Angeles. Perhaps Chicago comes up, or maybe Miami. Houston is rarely first on that list, when in fact, Houston is the fourth most highly populated city in the United States, and it keeps growing. Perhaps it’s the overall average temperature that draws people in, or its flourishing art and music scene. Perhaps people want to catch a glimpse at the Johnson Space Center, or see the amazing Livestock Show and Rodeo that has been a staple of Houston for over 80 years.
Whatever the appeal, Houston’s growing population has led to an explosion across industries. Restaurants are popping up, artists are moving to the city in search of their claim to fame, but there is one rapidly growing industry that many may not even consider: law.
A Booming Legal Industry
Between 2001 and 2017, 46 new law firms opened their doors. To many, this means nothing, but when put into the perspective that only San Francisco surpassed this number, the monumental feat is recognized. The phenomenal growth in the legal field makes sense—with more people and their variety of needs, a good lawyer is necessary to the new businesses popping up all the way to the teachers looking for better pay.
Each and every one of these 46 new law firms, as well as the dozens of old, cover different areas of practice. There are firms that specialize in maritime law, or sports and entertainment law, or criminal law. But no matter their area of practice, there is one thing every single one of these firms need: a quality court reporting service.
The Court Reporting Firm of Choice
Hanna & Hanna Certified Court Reporting & Video Specialists has been a crucial part of the Houston legal field for over 25 years. No matter the size of the case or the workload, Hanna & Hanna does what it can to ensure their clients have the best resources possible. The firm is owned and operated by experienced certified court reporters who understand the quick-paced field. Their dedication to their work and their clients is what makes them one of the most sought after court reporting firms in Houston.
From the beginning, Hanna & Hanna has been dedicated to providing their clients with the most up to date technology the world of litigation has to offer. A client cannot form the best case possible if they do not have the best equipment available. The firms who don’t keep up with the times get left behind, but Hanna & Hanna rises above. They offer excellent videography services and internet streaming not only across the state of Texas, but worldwide.
Every client leaves Hanna & Hanna totally satisfied with the service they booked. The court reporting specialists are efficient, accurate, and quick—even offering their clients same-day rough drafts and a full transcript in 24 hours. If clients need an emergency service, they can email Hanna Reporting at firstname.lastname@example.org and promptly receive a call or email, no matter the time of day. This dedication proves that Hanna & Hanna Reporting is truly dedicated to their clients—a highly admired trait.
Nowadays, it seems there isn’t a person in the world that doesn’t have at least one social media account. With so many options from Facebook, to Twitter, to Reddit, or Tumblr, it almost seems like we can’t avoid it—and many of us don’t. The little computers in our pockets keep us updated on our friends, family, favorite celebrities, local events of interest, and so much more.
Using the Web to Your Advantage
In this day and age, the biggest mistake a law firm can make is veering away from the bandwagon and not establishing an online presence. Instead of picking up the phone and calling the business to learn more, many instead opt to a quick Google search. If a firm doesn’t at the very least have a well-designed, easy to use website, potential clients turn the other way. It doesn’t matter how brilliant the staff is or how long the firm has been open. Clients don’t want to search for proof of excellence, they want it immediately.
When West Palm Beach elder law attorney, Mark Shalloway, not only understands this concept, but fully embraces it. With just a few clicks of a button, potential clients can not only find Shalloway and reviews of his firm, Shalloway & Shalloway, but an easy to access website that presents clients with information on the firm, its staff, its reputation, and any updates in the area of practice that is elder law. The website presents information in a concise manner that is incredibly valuable to the busy professional of the 21-century.
But hosting a great website is only half the battle. It is essential for firms to be pushing their names into the public. Many turn to radio or television commercials, and that is just fine, but there is a great alternative that saves time, money, and is used by billions of people every day—and that is social media.
How to Make the Most Out of Social Media
The Shalloway & Shalloway firm run a successful Facebook page. With a large number of followers, the attorneys at Shalloway & Shalloway can easily connect to potential clients. Running a social media allows them to share updates as they come. Recently, the firm moved locations. Because of their Facebook page, they were able to keep clients posted on the process, the location, and anything else involving the move.
Having one (or multiple) social media accounts allows the faceless attorneys of the firm to become humanized.
“There is intimidation and fear with booking with lawyer,” Mark Shalloway says. “If referred by someone else, that is a helpful resource, but if they need an elder law attorney, there is a lot of worry and fear.”
A vast majority of people have skewed images of lawyers, but having a presence on social media has allowed the staff at Shalloway & Shalloway paint themselves in the light they want to be painted, thus fostering better client relationships.
Social media is not only great for public image, but for generating business. When you follow a page, its posts appear on your timeline, keeping the company in your radar. By having a readily used social media, clients will remember the firm, and come back to whenever the need arises. With their Facebook page alone, Shalloway & Shalloway has seen an increase in business, and other firms should certainly take heed.
Salt Lake City became one of America’s great unique and historical cities in 1847. As one walks through the streets of Utah’s state capital, they can’t help but be humbled by breath taking architecture surrounded by glorious mountains. Though it may not look like it did during its conception, one can feel the history of Salt Lake City seeping through the cracks in the sidewalk.
Where history was once made, history is often made again. Tempest Reporting is a slice of that history. Though comparatively, Tempest Reporting is quite young, the court reporting firm has made its mark as not only one of the longest-standing firm of Utah court reporters, but as a premiere firm for attorneys and paralegals to turn to for all their litigation services. While this is perhaps an unexciting statistic to some, court reporting services play a huge part in our legal system. Since 1988, Tempest reporting has worked cases for all sizes for top personal injury, corporate law, and criminal law firms in the state. That is quite the feat.
What it Takes for a Successful Case
Tempest Reporting’s founder and President, Ariel Mumma, created the firm when she saw how things in the industry needed to change. When she first started, Ms. Mumma was shocked to realize that many court reporting firms were not utilizing the latest technology available. How is it possible for a firm to provide the best services when they don’t even have the best technology for their clients?
With that in mind, Tempest Reporting became one of the first court reporting firms to accepts transcripts and deliver them over email—allowing attorneys and paralegals to access what they need quickly. The firm was also one of the first to offer its clients compressed transcripts and videoconferencing. Nowadays, these aspects of business are commonplace. Tempest Reporting was one of the firms that helped pave that standard.
Independent Business for Best Services
The firm’s 30-year legacy of being an independently owned firm is another feat that many court reporting services are unable to make. Maintaining independence allows the firm to provide its clients with not only the best court reporting services, but the most attentive customer service. With Tempest Reporting, clients aren’t just a number whose ends justify the means. Clients are individuals with specialized and personal needs. That is why their services have remained unparalleled for three decades.
In this day and age, everyone is go-go-go. Many law professionals don’t have the time to scour phone books and countless websites court reporting and litigation services to fit their needs. That is why Tempest Reporting is more than a court reporting firm. They offer videoconferencing, videography, conference rooms, realtime services, and much more. They are aware that accidents happen and emergencies arise, so they follow through with their clients to ensure that nothing unexpected occurs, be it technical issues or otherwise. First and foremost, Tempest Reporting is there for the people.

Palm Beach elder care attorneys Shalloway & Shalloway are changing the way law firms advocate for their clients in a number of ways ranging from educational and philanthropic programs to providing new publications online.
Proprietor and lead attorney Mark Shalloway is among the most active within the legal community of Palm Beach County. With his involvement in free seminars and classes he demonstrates a commitment to helping others, whether they are Judge Advocate Generals in the United States Military or the families who care for their elderly in West Palm Beach.
Noted Elder Care Attorneys in the Palm Beaches
The Shalloway firm’s website provides free publications and notices of area events and legal news that is geared towards informing both attorneys and lay persons. One recent example is a press release highlighting Alzheimer’s Disease awareness. Titled “PALM BEACH COUNTY PROCLAMATION DECLARING NOVEMBER PUBLIC AWARENESS MONTH TO ALZHEIMER’S COMMUNITY CARE” the press release includes information on Alzheimer’s Community Care, a non-profit that is celebrating 20 years in Palm Beach County.
Special Needs Advisory Coalition Summit and JAG Seminar
Many law firms and attorneys offer free advice, publications and other resources as part of their mission. This tradition of giving also helps a firm or a laywer expand his/her client base in a very powerful way. What separates the Shalloway and Shalloway team from most firms however is the range and expertise behind their advocacy and philanthropy.
The result is both a community and populace more educated on the critical issues of elder and special needs care.
Court reporting is one of those niche industries in the legal profession not many people think about until they need one. For attorneys court reporters are an indispensable part of building a successful case, regardless of the area of practice.
Because court reporting is part of a legal industry that prioritizes the formal and conservative over the risk-taking and the forward-thinking when it comes to many business practices it is common to find the reporting industry far behind many others when it comes to technological advancements and usage.
Cady Reporting are Cleveland court reporters who reject that slow and steady trope when it comes to their ability to maximize technology for their success. The word “technology” can mean many things to many people, from a new smartphone to a new medication. For court reporting, technologies as varied as high speed wi fi and mobile-ready websites play an integral part in a company’s success.
Cady Reporting is a firm that has blended their technological savvy with traditional values to carve out a special dominant position within the Cleveland, Ohio local marketplace. Since they are also a member of the National Network Reporting Company (NNRC) court reporters directory, Cady Reporting maintains a national presence. This ability to work locally and nationally with attorneys and law firms makes Cady’s mobile booking engine and online repositories two of the most prominent technical advancements in the company’s repertoire.
President Chuck Cady elaborates:
“We work hard to stay at the digital and technological forefront, whether that means thinking outside the box on Facebook or maintaining a dazzling website where attorneys and professionals can book services from their smartphones 24/7.”
This emphasis on adaptability and mobility has been a big factor in the company’s success. Since most court reporting firms are small operations, usually between 3 and 10 employees, their resources are limited and often they fail to maintain even the basics of a professional business presence. Just look at some of their websites, for example!
For Cady Reporting, the ability to maintain very personal ties and provide personalized service to each client with the latest technologies in videography, conference rooms and reporting equipment makes for a dominant position within the industry and serves as a textbook success story for all in the legal professions.
